Cable Termination Kits Used In High Voltage Industrial Electrical Networks

Electricity is a very important aspect of every industry. In industries, high voltage electricity is used at a very large extent. When we are dealing with such high amount of electricity, it becomes very important to use the best quality and right types of electrical products and accessories so that maximum level of safety and efficiency could be maintained in your industrial electrical networks.

Cable Termination Kits Used In High Voltage Industrial Electrical Networks

Cable termination is a task that is performed in every electrical network. It is done to redistribute the electricity to various points coming from a single cable. The point where several cable terminals are made is called junction. Now the cable joints made during the termination process are very weak, and they have to bear various threats such as weather conditions, chemical attacks and mechanical impacts. In order to protect these cable terminals for these threats, cable termination kits are used, which provide a tight seal around the cable joints and protect the joints from outer effects. The cable termination kits also help in eliminating the strain that put on cable joints because of the heavy weight of long cables.

Compaq offers a wide range of cable termination kits with best quality and long life. The termination kits are available in two types, heat shrinkable termination kits and cold shrink cable termination kits for single core as well as triple core cables of varying sizes and loads. You can choose either of them according to you working conditions and requirements.

The cold shrink cable termination kits are used for less harsh working conditions and indoor installations whereas the heat shrinkable cable termination kits are used for places where you need sturdy and rugged function such as outdoor installation and underground cable networks. Below are given some of the technical specifications of the termination kits offered by Compaq.
